Stevyn Gilmore, front of house director for East Park Donuts & Coffee, said the vehicle crashed into the restaurant on Main Street at 3:39 a.m. Fortunately, no one was hurt. The crash happened just before the first person was scheduled to be on the property for the day at 4 a.m.

"I think we had some thick steel here at the front window that actually stopped the vehicle before she actually went in further," Gilmore said.

According to Metro Nashville Police, 29-year-old Sarah Flowers crashed into the business while driving with a blood alcohol level of .218.

She has been charged with a DUI.

"I just hope that you are okay, but everything else is here everything can be replaced just take care of yourself," Gilmore said.
